Update fails multiple times Windows defender

Been the same update for the past week or so,I don't use defender but it's annoying me because it keeps asking me to update but always fails.My hunch is the update is corrupted when it downloaded.Tried sfc /scannow it fixed some files,installed the latest Microsoft hotfix and still fails. Is there a way to delete the update and make it re-download because i think its corrupted and that's why it wont install or maybe it's another problem,unsure.Any suggestions and help is much appreciated.

Hello Miguel,

You might see if using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to reset Windows Update may help. :)

Double check to see if you have any of these .dll files missing in the C:\Windows\System32 folder, or cannot be fixed by SFC. If so, you could just let me know which ones you need, and I'll be happy to upload clean copies for you to replace/restore them. :)

urlmon.dll
mshtml.dll
shdocvw.dll

You should be able to extract the files from your Windows disk.
Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD

Of those you listed I do not have two. One other I have ends in a different letter than yours.
May be the same or slightly different so would be useless.
If I had them all I would have zipped and posted copies.

That is the only ideas I have.

Don't know if i'm failing to find them or what but I don't see any of them in the main directory of system32 on my dvd.Maybe i'm looking in the wrong place or it just doesn't have them

I have never had the need to try it before I remembered seeing the tutorial and posted it for you.

Brink stated above he would upload you copies if you let him know.

Yep, I don't have those .dll files either. It looks like Microsoft ("Click here to few or hide detailed information" link there) included them in the reset for other MS programs like Office.
